What is Cloud Enabler?
Cloud enabler refers to the technologies and manufacturers that serve as the backbone for all cloud computing products and services. A broad term that includes technology providers and solutions, a cloud enabler enables an organization to create, deploy, integrate, and deploy cloud computing solutions.
Cloud enablers are primarily IT firms that develop hardware, software, storage, networks, and other related products that serve as a cloud environment component. For example, an organization that develops virtualization hypervisors enables the development of virtual machines, virtual private servers, and other virtualization-based cloud solutions.
A cloud enabler is different from a cloud service provider in that the latter uses technologies developed by the former to provide cloud services to end users and other organizations.
